Not on the systems I am testing on (2.6.24-rc6) - the sysfs interface
displays boolean parameters as Y/N, and will accept boot parameters as
either Y/N or 0/1.  Below is a snippet from a test proving this point :

test at shtest:~$ cat /sys/module/ads7828/parameters/se_input
Y
test at shtest:~$ cat /sys/module/ads7828/parameters/int_vref
Y

after appending the ads7828.int_vref=N parameter to the kernel
command-line :

Linux 2.6.24-rc6 (shtest) (16:53 on Saturday, 05 January 2002)

login: test
test at shtest:~$ cat /sys/module/ads7828/parameters/int_vref
N

Is it more "correct" to refer to 1/0 in the documentation?
I just naturally used the same syntax provided by the sysfs nodes
